Well I changed and got a turkey day ticker yesterday and worked my butt off this week and I am finally down another pound! I was scared I would kick that scale good if it didn't move by tomorrow! (My normal official weigh in day! )
So I am now at 219!!! I am in the teens today hooray!!
So glad you joined us!!
Bycycling sounds good. I had wanted to add a bit of that in with my exercise but dh's bike is not comfy!
Yup, I eat the fresh ground p.b., just peanuts. The only thing is, I completely rebel against eating a full serving of just about everything.
What brand is that? I seen smuckers all natural just salt and nuts, has anyone tried that? What is the health benefit of those compared to the regular skippy? Anyone know?
Get n healthy:
So glad to have you!
Hello ladies. i would LOVE to do this challenge. I am going to the dreaded in-laws for Thanksgiving, so i would be really happy if i could be down 10 more pounds.
I hear ya! When my new parents in law came out 6 months ago I was 250! When I hit 225 I took a few pics and sent them!
They are nice people though and his mom is really happy for me to be getting healthy. She is like 220 herself and I always told myself, my gosh, you can't be fatter than your hubby's mom!!! Lose the weight!!! hahahaha
Here lately I have been averaging about 8 pounds a month but I need to kick it up a notch and get to 10 a month. With me being this heavy, there is no reason why i cant be getting 10 a month easy.
I know what ya mean! I hit the 8.5 pound mark by the 23rd of this month. then it stopped til today! I was upset cause it stopped and I was even thinking I would of rather just lost 8.5 evenly all month then to stop! Cause I had planned for 10 this month when I was losing 2.5 a week! I know my body can do it so get in gear!
The week is not over yet though, official weigh in is tomorrow so one more day. I am down 1.25 so far, so now I am down 9.50 for the month but today we are taking the kids clothes shopping and to dinner at Denny's tonite. I know I could be good and just get something lite, but heck I eat that all the time at home! I am going to have a cheeseburger and fries! I did look at the cal list and I think I will give a 1/4 of it to my 3 year old. That will cut down right there.
I will tell them no th. island either because I don't like that dressing at their place. It taste a lil different.
3. I count cals...goals are 1300-1500 a day 5 days, 1500-1700 2 days.
Yeah I calorie cycle too.
What is your average by the end of the week usually? How long do you walk your dogs for?
Look forward to working towards losing 10 pounds with you all. So glad to be a part of this challenge.
So I am!
Hello!!! I am glad you joined!!
3. I will follow the fatsmash diet plan and not give up.
Ugh...a fairly high-calorie "cycling" day, and I feel gross.
awww, how high was it? Sometimes I feel gross and heavy after having red meat, cause I normally do chicken.
Hello!!! Welcome! We are glad to have you!
I'd love to hop in and join the challenge.
Today I worked out at the gym for over an hour and started a serious diet of low carb and low calories.
I weighed and lost a pound from yesterday.
I have loads to lose so I'll just keep it at that.
I've decided to alternate my workouts between gym and walking. I need to relieve the pressure off my joints from going to the gym.
Just be careful going to low in cals. We are bigger girls and we can still lose at these weights with higher cals. (Hooray!) I for one have been losing this month even at the 1800 cal range! If we go to low too quick it might be hard to dip lower later like when we hit the 190's. How many cals are you on? That is great an hour at the gym!!!
Check out the womans health link I posted on the first page. That shows what your maintenance is and you can play with the numbers to get the pounds off per week that you want!
It has really helped me. I am losing and am never really hungry!
Hi sweetie!! I am so glad you joined!!
Girl I am losing already!! I am down a pound this a.m.!!! Your plan sounds good!!! We can do this!!! Take your son with you on a walk today!!
Hello! I am glad you joined us! Everyone is welcome to join us! The more the merrier!!!
3. i'll be following the 6 week body makeover plan
What is that? Sounds like a good plan!!
I love cheese too! I am watching it better now though.
That run sounds great! Definately be careful if you start hurting though. My ankle is hurting a bit from all the walking this week but only a tiny bit when I first woke up.
I will post my complete menu later as I am not sure what we are doing
today hubby has the day off and all of us are probably going out for the
Well everyone I have been doing pretty good this week, except monday. I was wondering if you guys think that what you do this week, food and exercise wise, affects you next week?
Like for instance:
week 1: 1850 cal average, 440 minutes total walking, 2.5 pounds gone by that sunday
week 2: 1880 cal average, 540 minutes total walking 2.5 pounds gone by that sunday
week 3: 1567 cal average, 360 minutes total walking 3.25 pounds gone by that sunday(the cals were alot lower cause I got sick a few days that week and had to basically force feed myself. )
week 4 Well we haven't finished this week yet but so far my average is at: 1691 cal average , my walking WILL be at 540 minutes today!!
I am down only 1.25 so far this week!
Okay so this is my theory. I was looking back over everything, as you know I was really irritated to have only lost .25 pound all week(I finally lost one more today!) When normally I have been losing 2.5 pounds every week. Today I am down another pound so that makes it 1.25 and we still have tomorrow but I am going out for dinner tonite. So I am hoping to just maintain!
Anyhow, my point is this. I am wondering if me doing the 540 minutes of walking in week 2 is what caused me to lose 3.25 pounds at the end of week 3 and that the reason I am only down 1.25 pounds so far this week, is because I only walked 360 minutes last week? It kind of makes sense to me. Like what you do this week, affects you next week! What does every one else think? Either way I am just going to roll with it. I am not going to let the scale have victory over me no matter what it says tomorrow. That is why this week, instead of getting depressed, I walked even more! Which is a good thing now that i am looking at the walking times. Now that I see the stats with the 540 vs 360 walking I am going to shoot for 540 every week! Today I am already at 510 and just need 30 more to get to 540. Am I making any sense to anyone?
This scale is not going to stop me from going out and enjoying dinner with my family tonite! I am also going to go shopping and buy a few new things for all of us, but esp. me! I deserve it!
So that is how my day is looking I am very excited about this pound! Finally!!!
